Safari Trek battery

Hi Folks, I recently purchased a 1998 Safari Trek with a Chevrolet gas engine and I cannot for the life of me find the starter battery.
As I will be storing it for a few months I need to disconnect the battery. Not sure how to do that if I can't find it😫

Thanks

What model Trek?. If your is like my 1999 2830, the battery should be right behind the left front wheel; access by the generator door. Also, join the Trek forum Login

Thanks George, I would never have thought of looking there.
My RV is 1998 Safari Trek 2830 gas powered with I believe a Chevy 7.5 litre engine.
I will definitely join the Trek forum.

Tombo,

I also just thought of what some call the "Salesman Switch". This is a master cut off with the handle in the entry step of your Trek. I don't know how many other brands have this but the name comes from an RV salesman showing a Trek where all power is cut off, and he can easily turn everything on with just one switch. You can find more information by using the search function on the Trek forum, and maybe on this forum.

Also, while the Trek forum is great for our specific RV's, don't abandon IRV2; I review this every day and almost always find some applicable information - or at least entertainment as people promote their opinions on various "Hot" topics

Finally, go to USER CP and add your signature and RV information.
